6:10am
and this is breaking news. [♪ "world news tonight" theme ♪] >> stephanie: got it go ahead. uh-huh. >> speaker boehner was tragically injured in a trust fall gone bad as various members of the caucus just backed away as he fell. >> stephanie: oh, dear. >> it has been a lot of fun so far. we're going to shopping for try-hat. >> that's the only thing to do there. you can visit my parents there. my dad drives the boat at busch garden. >> stephanie: karl frisch charlie pierce will be there. >> that's right, shaneo and
6:11am
danielle are going to be there. >> stephanie: and i think sue in rockville. >> rocky mountain mike. >> stephanie: right? okay. >> it sounds like a family reunion. >> stephanie: it is. let's dive into the right-wing world. here we go. oh, kneel cavudo. >> republicans well delirious after the president signs 23 executive orders he says will help curve gun violence but they say is a mockery of the constitution. a beefed up background system [ inaudible ] share that data of their own for that background system, and expanding the affordable care act to include allowing doctors to ask their patients, do you have guns in
6:12am
your home? [♪ dramatic music ♪] >> oh, no! >> ahhhhh! >> it is the end of the world. >> stephanie: i think i saw, karl, george w bush did about 300 executive orders the president has done about 140, something like that. >> yeah. i would point out that the president would have done anything on this. they would have played right into the nra membership retention themes which are basically fear and paranoia. >> stephanie: right. >> the notion that -- the only reason that any of the things that we mentioned are scary is if you are convinced that the government is going to come get you. >> stephanie: exactly. >> but otherwise what do we expect? >> stephanie: right. and by the way another fyi,
6:13am
george w. bush also called for an assault weapon's ban. >> in the first four years of his administration president obama did more to expand handgun ownership. these are normal rational things and you have nothing to fear. >> yes, but he's black. >> stephanie: all right. ollie north on nra news radio. >> it is now going to be done by executive action. >> shocking! >> that's contrary to my understanding of what the constitution is all about. and i think it's contrary and foreign to most of us. when he raise that right hand and take that oath we don't pledge to a political party, to an individual, unlike many other countries around the world. what we have done is we have now
6:14am
decided that one man can decide what is or isn't legal under certain circumstances. >> yeah. >> i think that civil libertarians, and by the way the national rifle association is one of the greatest protectors of civil liberties that has ever existed on the planet earth. >> of course if you have been shot in the face your civil liberties -- >> stephanie: yeah. >> i apologize i called him a convicted felon oliver north -- >> stephanie: wasn't he taking an oath about telling the truth and stuff. >> yeah, apparently he is a constitutional scholar ollie north. just ridiculous, again, the president is doing nothing different than other presidents have done. i love that he said the nra is like the biggest protector of civil liberties on earth. actually i think it was planet
6:15am
coron. which is probably inaccurate. there are probably civil liberties on jupiter. but you are not allowed to say anything about gun control which is why the nra must be so good on civil liberties. >> right. >> stephanie: yeah, there you go. >> you are free to agree with the nra. >> stephanie: exactly. okay. by the way are they going out of their way to act like [ censor bleep ] holes or is it just me? the ad about the president's children and the violent video game. >> this is par for the course. this is how they operate 24/7. >> stephanie: they are the only party not coming to the table in any way, they are just there to
6:16am
inflame and divide people further. >> this is how you win political debates in washington. this is how you make it so that the last time anything gun related was considered, it was to relieve the gun industry of liability for making shoddy guns. >> stephanie: yeah, once again, the american people want pretty much what the president just put forward, and then you hear it is not going to pass because of the house republicans. >> we make them not pass it okay? there is a political story about the president's new strategy of forcing republicans to take no action on very popular things. and republicans like to say that, you know, we -- you know health care repeal 12, 13 30 times. the only people that appeals to
6:17am
is the crazy base of their party. but the president pushing these things, i think forcing republicans to not do anything because they won't, house republicans is a good thing. even if it means that senate democrats have to take tough votes in a few states. >> stephanie: i found myself thinking of the movie "lincoln," when the president said this will only happen if the american people want it. and i refuse to give in. that's what they said about the amendment that lincoln was trying to get passed right? >> i think moral and fiber and character of people in lincoln's time was probably a little bit higher than speaker boehner and mitch mcconnell. so i hope speaker boehner does the right thing and opens it up to a vote. if the nra has bought their
6:18am
power anywhere it's in the house of representative. >> i'm just going to open up a bottle of bourbon. [ glugging sound ] >> stephanie: i was hoping yesterday that he would say he loves sydney allen wade. but he didn't. >> but he'll drink to sand. >> stephanie: exactly. let's do rush limbaugh. >> been watching the -- the -- the children as human shields -- >> oh, shut up. >> that is now going on at the white house. by these guys were somber you would have thought that eulogies -- [ mumbling ] -- worked with this guy 27 hours a day. president barack obama. and the president starts out reading letters from kids. got to answer all of their letters to santa claus. >> stephanie: wow.
6:19am
what a jerk. really? >> you know -- >> stephanie: there were parents there who just lost their kids at sandy hook -- >> god what a -- >> rush limbaugh i have to say that you will have to prior his microphone out of his cold dead fingers. i want news busters to start recording right now, that i can't wait to be 50 when that is a possibility. >> stephanie: all right. i stopped talking there so they had an edit point. >> rush limbaugh taking these issues inflaming his audience lying to his audience -- >> stephanie: right, was that me or was that a mocking tone. guess what moron there were eulogies just a month ago. >> people like rush limbaugh who have no compassion for the lives lost, it only inflames the crazy conspiracy thing that has never
6:20am
happened. >> stephanie: the tone was i guess not quite jovial enough. >> i guess it would be wrong for me to say that some people deserve to get shot in the face. [ buzzer ] >> stephanie: stop it! >> we can't talk about the tragedies when we're talking about public policy. after 9/11 -- we talked about 9/11 after talking about terrorism. so we wouldn't talk about a tragedy when you are discussing public policy -- >> stephanie: and the sandy hook families have stepped forward and saying we appreciate his leadership. he is trying to do something. >> the nra thinks the right for some whack job to own an assault rifle, supercedes the right for
6:21am
kids to not be shot in the face. >> stephanie: all right. go to meeting -- kids every year we make resolutions to be more productive and work smarter. you can't do everything unless you have go to meeting. >> right. >> stephanie: it's the fast and simple way to be on line with anyone where you want to in a cot on a hat -- >> in a cat, what? >> on a cat in a hat. you can see each other face-to-face, the video and audio audio quality amazing. and you can run the meeting from

6:27am
so i think the voters of his district know how to treat that behavior, by senning him home. >> stephanie: a new poll finds that president obama's approval rating 55% approve 43% disapprove. so i -- doesn't that make you crazy, karl when these republicans go on and say the american people -- >> well they mean, you know the people in the try corner hats. the various koch brothers. >> stephanie: yeah, all of the koch brothers. >> yeah. by the way they would be in a much better place as a party, and we would be in a much better
6:28am

6:29am
issues or people bringing them in to see their doctor because they may become part of a national law enforcement database? there is no connection between reality and what this president is proposing. >> stephanie: wow, actually there is a lot of connection between what he has done and reality. >> if you don't want gun control or doctors narcing on people who might be mentally unstable how do they expect us to get a handle on this. by the way mark levin's voice is enough to make anybody go crazy. >> stephanie: all right. karl frisch love you honey. >> stephanie: twenty-nine minutes after the hour. right back on the "stephanie miller show." ♪ going to do the young turks.
6:30am
i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us.

6:35am
you have got to get out of congress for that. >> that's right. >> stephanie: you must have -- obviously being from new jersey, be incredibly frustrated not only that a lot of your colleagues voted against sandy aid, but it took this long to get it. >> yes, look this is 80 days when you look at other storms and catastrophes that we have had, there has been a much quicker response. i don't know whether it is because it's northeast and they are all blue states or -- but what are we talking about here? when we had the disaster in texas ten years ago, i went down to texas myself. >> stephanie: right. >> and those people were so, so happy to see -- particularly from the new york metropolitan area, new jersey guy comes down here to see our grief and we responded quickly. we responded right away and
6:36am
when -- i went to those congressmen down in that area phil powe, from texas, brady from texas, and i said how can you do this? i mean come on. one part of the country isn't more valuable than the other part of though country. needless to say they voted no. you know, they know i'm ticked off, and i'm making a list and checking it now what can i tell ya. >> stephanie: yeah and governor christie made that point. a lot of those states you put in so much more than you take out. >> absolutely. >> stephanie: you know, he said something yesterday, he said there simply isn't enough time between now and the 4th of july for every business to be up and running again, what we're hoping to do is to make the jersey shore functional and livable
6:37am
again. well, as your colleague pointed out that wouldn't have been the case if we would have gotten them help on time. >> yeah and when we did katrina, how many new jersey police officers and firefighters went down to help on the second day. we voice voted 1/6th -- 1/5th of the money out of the chute for katrina. and the point i make over and over again, is look it would add to the deficit whether you were north of south, it doesn't matter. we have only paid for a small amount in terms of offsets for any of these storms. from 2003 to now, in 2003 we
6:38am
had a rule under different circumstances, we had to find some money or find the revenue to pay for it. >> stephanie: right. >> but this is an emergency. we are 80 days into this now. you know how many homes have been damaged and destroyed? i think it's like close to 350,000 homes. >> stephanie: yeah. >> the power outages in new jersey, two -- over 2.5 million no power. i mean i go down the whole list. >> stephanie: right. and it's winter back east encase encase -- in case people haven't noticed. it used to be we are just americans. but look at yesterday, look at yesterday, when there was a tragedy, we used to try to figure out how we come to the table. literally there are people accusing the president of being
6:39am
like saadam hussein, and using children as human shields. >> yeah, they will stop at nothing. we have more ideologues now in the congress than we had in the 112th congress. the president got reelected. we picked up ten seats in the house. that's great. we have more ideologues now, the people replaced fairly moderate republicans, and now we have to deal with a whole bunch of them. and they just see and have -- you know have tunnel vision, they want -- they want to give in an echo chamber, and they think they are right on everything else. so these next two years are not going to be any easier than the last two years. this is their mantra they are afraid to look over their shoulder to fear that somebody
6:40am
is coming up beside them in the primary, being challenged and threatened, and they are falling in place which is dangerous for the country. this is one nation as you said stephanie. >> stephanie: right. >> so we quote unquoted liberals that want to make us a european socialism, we are the patriots and we have got to stand up by what we believe in. and not be frightened by their intimidation and threats. >> stephanie: right. the president said yesterday this will only happen if the american people want it. i'm sure you looked at the latest time cnn poll, most of the americans want what the president put on the table. >> exactly. we're not going to take guns away from those who are hunters -- i have many friends in the nra who believe their leadership is out of touch totally -- >> stephanie: who thinks it is
6:41am
okay to bring the president's kids into debate and what a ridiculous argument. >> i can't say on the air what i really think of that. >> stephanie: all right. out of respect for my fcc license, thank you. >> and i respect that. >> stephanie: me too. what do you think can get done on all of this? >> i believe that you are not going to get a package. i don't think that's the easy way -- the more difficult way to do it is to try to get a package. i probably think that we're going to have a package of ideas, but when it comes to the floor, they will be divided up into -- whether we're talking about magazines, how many bullets you can load into one of these rapid-fire weapons, and, you know registering your gun when you guy it. >> yeah. >> i think that's a sensible idea. i mean we have different laws for cars than we have for guns, it doesn't make any sense. >> stephanie: and
6:42am
representative, i think one of the victims -- or excuse me -- i think it's a sandy hook parent i think made the point best. he said we have got to do something different. >> yes. >> stephanie: you can't just say this happened and we're going to do the same thing. >> congress is pretty good at doing the same thing over and over again and not accomplishing anything. >> stephanie: it's your bag, baby. >> i know, and i do think that we can -- look we want reasonable reform. there is no need to put the terror propaganda out there, that this is the begin of what the president wants to do. first they take away your guns and there's all conspiracy here which of course we have meetings on late into the night, really clandestine. i mean, these guys are living in reality tv. i have to deal with reality in
6:43am
my district. i have to deal with young kids being shot intentionally or unintentionally on the streets. and guns that have had their numbers filed down. these are guns that are coming over our borders. i believe we have to stop that trafficking of weapons. >> stephanie: yep. >> we started to stop the trafficking of weapons from the united states to mexico. >> stephanie: right. >> when i was in homeland security, you couldn't believe the resistance of looking into weapons that were leaving the united states and going into mexico. now why would we want -- why would we want to stop -- not want to stop that trafficking whether it was drugs or -- or weaponry into mexico, since we have stomped it down to the ground as much as we could anyway. >> stephanie: and look at how
6:44am
new york got done on gun control. how quickly and in a bipartisan way. >> you have got to do the work beforehand. cuomo wouldn't have brought it up -- he didn't bring it up the legislature brought it up, but he approved it. in congress we kind of work like backwards many times. we go from the top and then it comes down to the members, and that's not the way to do it. we do that on that lot of subjects. i think the president has done the right thing to talk to those who were first affected. >> stephanie: yeah. >> what the hell did they do wrong? >> yeah. >> i agree with the nra on the subject of mental illness, but these are the guys that stopped us from trying to get equity in terms of mental illness on a parity of physical problems and
6:45am
physical illnesses. it took people like kennedy who just left the congress from rhode island. he worked 15 years to get that done, and we all supported that effort, and it was a bipartisan effort in the final analysis and we have to continue down that path. many people are out there who are allowed to buy weapons, and they have real deep problems. we all have problems and -- do different degrees, and we should be trying to help each other, and you have got to establish a network to do that. >> stephanie: that's right. >> i agree with that. i think we should do a tremendous amount of soul searching about who is allowed to buy weapons. >> stephanie: absolutely. >> there is no silver bullet here -- sorry to use that expression -- but there is no
6:46am
silver bullet. i see it every day. how many kids have been shot down? and you go to the funeral and see these poor mothers and fathers. and what do you say? >> stephanie: yeah. what do you say when you see this picture of grace the little girl that painted the president in his study, and she wanted to be a painter -- >> i can't look at it too long. >> stephanie: exactly. and you sound like a tough guy that doesn't cry all the time. >> i have lived in the city all of my life. i was the mayor of my city. i know what gun violence is all about. i lead the way when the governor got a ban on assault weapons. the abuse that he took stephanie was similar to the abuse that president obama has faced. similar to the abuse that carolyn mccarthy has had to
6:47am
face. but if you believe in something, you have got to do it. >> stephanie: representative good point. what kind of country do we live in where you can turn on your tv and mr. carol mccarthy is on you go oh, there has begun violence somewhere. >> yeah she has become our face in many ways. and yet she reached out -- she reached out, for instance several times during the passage -- we came in to the congress at the same time, we're in our 17th year in the congress, and we talked and talked to people from all sides of the aisle. i was there when carolyn talked to mr. denkins -- mr. dingel rather from michigan, the dean of the congress. he is a great gun advocate and
6:48am
he's been very very directed in his own mind to try to reconcile our differences. there are many people like that in the congress. >> stephanie: yeah. >> the senator from west virginia, even he said that there are common sense things that we must do. what do we do waiting for the next universal violent act? >> stephanie: yep, exactly. if only we had more congressmen like bill pascrell. i could talk to you all morning. i'm going to the jersey shore this summer and knocking back a few with you. >> that's a great idea. >> stephanie: representative always a pleasure. >> nice talking to you too, and say hello to the crew.
